Lily was combing through my website looking for a certain post. Once she was done she looked at me and asked why I never posted her big leaves on here. So per her request I am sending out a huge Thank You to Stephanie.
It all started a couple of months ago when the weather was starting to change. Lily asked me randomly one day if the leaves in Seattle were starting to fall off the trees yet. I told her I thought so. Then she asked me to send Stephanie a message asking her to find a couple of big leaves. Lily was thinking about last year around Thanksgiving when we went to Seattle and she found a bunch of big leaves in downtown Seattle. Again this is one of those things that most people take for granted but the kids who grow up in the south are completely captivated by.
Here is the big leaf picture that Lily was thinking of.
About a week ago there was a large package on our front porch addressed to Lily. She had no idea that I actually asked Stephanie about the leaves. Sneaky, huh?
After reading the note she was a little nervous about opening it wrong so I helped her.
Check out the size of these suckers! Holy Maple Tree!
Lily said to say “Thank you Aunt Stephanie you are the best and I love you too”!
